Good morning: In the early 1990’s there was a phenomenally successful ad campaign designed around the phrase: “I wanna be like Mike,” referring to the basketball superstar Michael Jordan. Millions of aspiring athletes watched with awe as he weaved his way down the court through opposing players and slammed the ball through the hoop. On…

Good morning: “All-you-can-eat buffet—FREE!” Any restaurant advertising that on their sign is guaranteed to get my attention and probably my business too. What could be better than to have a selection of everything from salad to soup to prime rib to decadent dessert from which to choose, and then to have as much as you…

Good morning: On Tuesday the Lord suddenly called longtime Messiah member, Marty Bernthal, home to Himself to receive the crown of glory Jesus won for all of us on the cross. On Wednesday the news broke that a veteran Milwaukee police officer had been shot and killed in the line of duty. It makes one…

Good morning: Sooner or later it’s bound to happen that a friend will let you down or frustrate you in some way. Maybe it’s the third time this month that you rearranged your schedule to get together and for the third time the friend canceled at the last minute. Do you ever think, “Who needs…

Good morning, There are times when it’s wise not to say certain things. It would be foolish and dangerous to yell “Fire!” in a dark, crowded theater when there was no fire. Say something about a bomb in the airport screening line, and you will quickly be taken into custody for questioning. Make fun of…

Good morning: A dream of many is to be part of something bigger, to know that their life is more than just going to school or work, paying the bills, and filling one little niche in their community. But how realistic is that? None of us is famous. Have you ever wondered how many people…

Good morning: Have you ever returned from a vacation more stressed and exhausted than when you left? “I need a vacation from my vacation!” you might have said. It happens when we lose sight of a vacation’s purpose. When it is used to get away from everyday obligations and deadlines in order to rest and…

Good afternoon, The refrain of a current song on the radio includes this line: “I believe most people are good.” It’s certainly an optimistic, upbeat sentiment, especially when contrasted with all the horrible things we hear about on the news and social media. Who of us wouldn’t want to share that belief? Still, a belief,…

Hello everyone: Finally….after months of anticipation, planning, and many hours of work by the committee, the celebration of our school’s 25th anniversary is here. But why all the attention and effort? Isn’t 25 just a number, one more than 24 and one less than 26? There is nothing remarkable about 25 itself, but it is…

Good morning, What’s a paraclete? The Greek word is translated as “Helper” in John 14:26 where we read: “But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you.” Literally, paraclete means someone “called…
